Refrigerated Warehouse

Refrigerated Warehouses are complex facilities that store frozen foods or perishables. Commonly used to store frozen foods or produce, refrigerated warehouses require a certain standard of hygiene to operate. Duramax PVC panels offer a sanitary seamless surface that is designed to avoid the formation of mold or water damage.

Description: Sharon is a botanist who works in the vegan foods industry, except not in the typical realm. Instead of packaging meat replacements made of tofu for humans, she makes vegan treats for pets. This started as a side gig to her job at the local veterinarian’s office, which quickly became a full-time business. Once Sharon’s vegan treat business grew beyond her garage, where storage never lasted more than a day, it was time to think about a more feasible long-term solution.

For about half her inventory, this was no problem. These were dry goods, so she could just designate a space and stack them there until they were ready to be shipped to pet stores. The complicated bit was the other half of her inventory. Many of these items were subject to problems if they were kept at room temperature or hotter, so they would need to be refrigerated. This presented Sharon with the task of sectioning off half her warehouse, which would require different types of walls that didn’t allow the cold to escape into the other space and vice versa. A tight seal on wall panels isn’t just a way to make sure an area is a certain temperature, it’s also to make sure you’re cooling the large space efficiently and not running up unnecessarily high power bills.

Sharon contacted us about our Duramax PVC wall panels, and we were able to help with at least one headache she faced. She was pleased with the seal provided by vinyl wall panels, and the sleekness of their surface, which made cleaning take far less time. The fact that our wall panels reduce the activity of bacteria was even more of an unexpected boon to her business. As Sharon put it, she was allowing for a certain amount of spoiled goods in her previous operation, chalking it up as the cost of doing business. After she upgraded to Duramax PVC wall panels, this margin for error became virtually nonexistent!

Description: The term ‘refrigerated warehouse’ probably gives you the image of a giant freezer that’s probably full of ice cream. While reality might be a bit less tasty, there will always be a need for cold storage as long as businesses ship and hold perishable items. This includes facilities like meat-packing plants, grocery store suppliers, and yes, even ice cream makers. Any company looking to change their warehouse format or build a new refrigerated warehouse quickly becomes aware of the logistical concerns, the walls in particular.

Warehouse manager Donovan has made a living off of helping these types of companies convert to cold storage. He has used Duramax PVC wall panels for the past four years, after switching from fiberglass due to concerns over the material’s hygienic properties. Specifically, there were concerns over fiberglass’s ability to keep food fresh, especially meat products that breed bacteria. Donovan commented that he read about the fact PVC panels don’t retain bacteria or moisture under the material’s surface, and he knew he’d won half the battle. Another part of that battle is maintaining the seams in the wall panels so the cold isn’t continuously escaping. Fortunately, Duramax PVC panels install seamlessly, so the terms ‘waterproof’ and ‘airtight’ can be applied literally. The crevice-free design of our panels and their chemical/biological resistance would be enough for most refrigerated rooms, no matter the size.

We expressed to Donovan in the initial consultation how easy it is to clean vinyl, and that usually all it takes is a bit of water pressure and whichever approved solvent you use. He was skeptical at first, so we sent him a free sample so he could experiment with cleaning different substances he encountered every day. These trials were important for more than just the sake of cleanliness, but to accommodate refrigerated warehouses that are subject to inspection. Donovan’s next call wasn’t to admit his skepticism was unfounded but to place an order.
